This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyse how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website will usually be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. However, if IP anonymization is activated on this website, your IP-address will be truncated beforehand within the area of Member States of the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the whole IP address be first transferred to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. IP anonymization is active on this website.

These web analysis services are used to improve the functions and services of VBW on an ongoing basis. Only non-personal data is used for analysis and reporting purposes. VBW will not associate this data with other personal information. We have an appropriate order data processing agreement with the provider. Our relationship with the web analytics provider is based on the Privacy Shield. The legal basis for data processing is constituted by the provisions of the Telecommunications Act § 96 para. 3 as well as art. 6, para. 1(a) (consent) and/or (f) (legitimate interest) of the GDPR. Our purpose in the sense of the GDPR (legitimate interest) is the improvement of our services and our web presence. Since the privacy of our users is important to us, user data is pseudonymised.
In accordance with the principles of data avoidance and data minimization, we store personal data only as long as necessary or is required by law (statutory storage period). If the purpose of the information collected ceases to apply or the storage period ends, we will block or delete the data.
